Zealously Fighting For Your Future If You’re Charged With A Violent Crime

Violent criminal offenses are some of the most serious charges on the books. A conviction can result in incarceration – and the consequences will not stop there. When your future and your freedom are in jeopardy, it is time to hire a criminal defense attorney who will zealously protect you.

My name is Maritza Antu. I have spent more than 18 years practicing criminal law on behalf of the people of Texas. I established The Antu Law Firm, PLLC, in 2016 to advocate for the rights of people accused of serious crimes.

I Have Litigated Just About Every Charge Imaginable

As a former prosecutor, I spent years building cases for the other side. This gives me extensive knowledge of how the District Attorney’s Office works. I know how to anticipate a prosecutor’s strengths and weaknesses and build a strong defense strategy to protect you.

There is no type of criminal charge that I have not seen in my career. Just a few of the cases that I have handled include:

  • Homicide
  • Manslaughter
  • Sexual assault
  • Armed robbery
  • Child abuse
  • Assault and battery
  • Domestic violence

Some of the case results that I have achieved include dropped charges, acquittals, reduced charges and reduced sentences. I am committed to doing everything in my power to getting you the lightest outcome I can.

A Lawyer Can Help You Avoid A Harsh Sentence

Most violent offenses are felonies, meaning that they can carry sentences of at least one year of incarceration. The penalties for violent crimes vary depending on the offense, aggravating factors such as the use of a weapon and your prior record. If you have previous convictions – especially those involving violence – the court will almost certainly punish you harshly. The worst thing you can do is leave matters to chance and hope that your case will resolve itself. Instead, work with a lawyer like me who will stand up for you.
